    Site Address: Kingsbury Water Park, Sutton Coldfield, W Midlands


    Phone: 01827 874101


    Rating: Highly Recommended.

    Price Guide: Check the C&CC sites book or the website for the latest prices, it varies depending on season, if you are member it will be cheaper and if you are over 60 you will get age concession out of season which can make a nice saving.


    A Camping and Caravanning Club site open to non members and is open all year round. 7 Miles from Tamworth. Just off junction 9 M42.


    There are two heated toilet blocks on site wihich are the usual high standard of Club sites. All usual amenities - showers, toilets, washing up sinks, chemical toilet disposal which are kept immaculately clean etc.


    The site is within the Kingsbury Water Park. Lots of walks from the site also bird hides, fishing, cycling and water sports. There is a pleasant pub that where you can get a meal (The Dog and Doublet) it is just a short walk down the canal, it has seats on the canal side where you can have a drink and watch the boats go by. Kingsbury village just a couple of miles away by car or walk through the park in about 45 minutes. Ideal for NEC at Birmingham.

          Lin 22 We just put 5m length, 2m width and never have a problem.

          The real difference between hard standing and grass is just how soft the ground is and how muddy it gets. If it is first time out I'd recommend going for hard standing. You should be able to pitch your awning at the back even on hard standing (rock pegs and a mallet advised).

          Enjoy!

              We use a club hammer rather than a wooden / rubber mallet. It seems to have more whacking power.

              There is the bonus that this site is easily accessible whatever the weather (sun, rain, deep snow...) I managed to sail past the entrance on my first visit!

              It is an easy stroll down the track to the lake and well worth the effort. (Can get a bit muddy!) A slightly longer (though not far really) walk to the cafe and little, children's farm, both worth visiting if they are open.
              Carpe diem! :)

                Also if you’ve got good mobility and aren’t afraid of a good walk or cycle there are bird hides around the lakes and a tunnel under the M42 leads to another part of the park with more lakes for fishing, water sports etc., a narrow gauge railway for kids and adults alike to enjoy and a visitor centre with an excellent cafe for indoor or outdoor eating.

                You can literally walk for miles around the park if you are up to it. If you are into running there is a great 5k park run on Saturday mornings with very friendly volunteers and fellow runners to encourage you round the course.

                    Sadly I think a lot of campers miss the delights of the whole park because either they can’t walk far, can’t be bothered or don’t realise it’s all there.

                      There are some RSPB hides about a mile along the canal towards Tamworth and Middleton Hall close by - worth a visit perhaps if you enjoy walking.
